jimorothy 15 Oct Solo rpt Descent. Roped solo for the most part; I quite fancied coming back alive! In heavy rain with 30m visibility; extremely greasy and lethal yesterday in those conditions. Defo no place for chancing it.

TerryB 4 Jan, 2009 2nd rpt Please just let me caveat that this is how we found the scramble on 04/01/09 and make no assurances that others will find it the same. Also, protection is advised throughout the scramble particularly in wet, icy or otherwise adverse conditions. Enter `Fat Man's Agony' and scramble easily onto the platform facing you as you exit the squeeze. The Green route follows the first method of ascent and the blue indicates an alternative on the Broad Stand inclining platform. Turn around to face away from the big slab corner to look at the slight inclining on the right-hand side. I and my friends found this easy to scramble up but it is probably best to do this protected as there is a bit of a drop. Also, this incline can get quite greasy in wet weather as can the rest of Broad Stand. The scramble from the incline up and around was quite easy but this again could be protected. I found the holds fairly broad but the rock was grippy. Then scramble up onto the Broad Stand platform and face into the corner. The platform is slightly inclining so due regard must be given for that. There is a useful crack going up into the corner that it is possible to place toeholds. Up on the top of the corner, as indicated with the red ellipse, there are a couple of nice jugholds. One is directly on top with which it is possible to hold with the left hand and there is a nice jug going slightly downwards in the corner at the top in which it is possible to place the right hand. From there, I found it possible (I am 5 feet 5.5" (btw the .5 is important especially at a time like this ;-)0) to place the left foot onto the onto the inclined foothold, indicated by the purple eclipse, place the right foot into the crack in the corner and using the hands to pull, work oneself upwards. The movement is slightly awkward as it is not possible to pull directly upwards but rather obliquely. My friends found the blue route easier although some people prefer the corner route (green) since the blue route is more exposed. Also interestingly, both friends are taller than 5'9''. From there the scramble gets considerably easier although the feeling of exposure remains due to the incline. Please note in the photograph provided 1a, you can see a rope. In fact, there were two ropes available on that day. One coming down from the top of the scramble someway up from the end of the green line and another rope that had been thoughtfully knotted with loops. The problem is that the ropes and anchorage are of unknown quality due to age and weathering. We tested and used them on that day but it would be preferable to provide your own protection and not to rely on those ropes. The top rope is anchored by a chock above and the bottom rope by means of a bolt near to where the blue line ends. I and one friend abseiled down using the anchor having first tested it for security. 090610 Update - The bolts and ropes have now been removed by the climbing fraternity http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?n=358401. Please be aware that the description given above regarding bolts and ropes is no longer accurate.
